I think I'm going to throw up.

I'm not a huge tennis fan, but checked in to see how Milos was doing. Was so confused when they didn't go to a tiebreaker.

The big-serving South Africa claimed a 2-6, 6-7 (5/7), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 to see his Wimbledon title slip away from his grasp and end hopes of a showdown with rival Rafael Nadal

Damn, how many ways is that sentence farked up? It implies a whole country beat Federer. The word "victory" is missing after the scores. "His" has the wrong antecedent.

So, I guess three. The sentence is farked up in three ways. Bad editor.

I had an old injury flare up! My shoes didn't fit right! My racquet wasn't re-strung quite right! The sun was in my eyes! The crowd was against me! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!

Andy Williams still busy crushing P*$$y and making money with Rod Stewart and David Copperfield.

Actually watched some of this match during lunch. I was more impressed that Anderson can serve at 120MPH+.

Guys, he's toast. He's past his prime. His knees are more shot than a hooker at a 7-11. He will never play Major League Tennis again. I doubt he can even afford his parking ticket. Game over, man. Two words; Total. Loser.

I know this will come as a massive shock, but the first set of Raonic/Isner is in a tiebreak and neither player had a break point.

Has Isner ever won a set by more than 2 games?

Wimbledon doesn't have a tie-break in the final set.  I know this because I am an Andy Roddick fan.

sure, if he serves first in the set and gets one break he can win it 6-3!!!1

I at least was hoping to see him play Nadal, no matter who won.

What is an editor, I haven't seen much proof of their existence lately.

It will never cease to amaze me that I play on the same size court as the pros and that the pros can hit the ball that hard and somehow still have enough control to keep it in.

Most can't.

Which is why one trick ponies like Isner and Anderson are so highly ranked
